Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem.
Broken Motor
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself.
Bad Switch
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch

Sharp comfort touch air conditioner screen doesnt show settings and buttons wont work after cleaning. help its hot!!!!!


Switch off the unit at the isolator or fuse box. Leave off for 10 mins to reset. When powering up again and it still wont work, check your remote control batteries are good. Also confirm you haven't "blanked out" the display. Some controls have a display or LED function which blanks out the display so that the lights are not bright at night time. (For bedrooms so that the light doesn't keep you awake) Also check that you have not pressed a "child lockout button" This will stop anything ..

Heat/Dry button


My motto with all electrical systems is: If all else fails reboot. Find the breaker that controls the dishwasher and switch it off for a couple of minutes. this will clear out the electronic buffer. and reset the systems. make sure that the door is not closed, reset the breaker and try to restart your dishwasher.

I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry buttom several times until all the buttoms light up this may fix your problem.
You may have different kind of light flashing indicator, but the same solution.
Possibly check the sequence switch

Machine won't start and the START light keeps blinking


A flashing start button shows that the filter is dirty. Remove the filter assembly from the machine. The "tube" can be split into 2 sections fairly simply - do so, and wash each piece under the tap to clean it.
Once the assembly is cleaned properly, select the program that you desire, and press and HOLD the start button for 2 seconds. The wash cycle should begin.

Dishwasher lights blinking


QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
